Hennepin Hundred Ultramarathon
The Hennepin Hundred is a 100 mile ultramarathon that includes 50-mile and 50K points, as well as, a 100 mile relay. The race starts at Rock Falls along the Feeder Canal. The turnaround point and 50-mile finish is at Lock 17 in Wyanet, IL and the 100-mile finish is in Colona, IL.
The Hennepin Hundred is hosted by Trails for Illinois and Ornery Mule Racing, who actively work to raise awareness for Illinois trails and contribute to their preservation and repair. Proceeds donated by Trails for Illinois, raised from the 2017 Hennepin Hundred race will be used by canal staff to re-deck the timbers of one of the original iron truss bridges (Bridge 15) along the canal towpath that is used by runners and other park-goers.
Runners begin in the morning and run through the night, stopping at some of the most interesting volunteer-run aid stations in the ultramarathon community.
